Miracle Grow


Stained mold grown gourds, I.V. pole, medical trays, gelatin capsules, mixed media. Dimensions variable (Three pieces – 2@39x23x19” 1@70x23x23”)

A response to the institutionalization of farming (agribusiness) this piece was made with medical equipment and gourds that were constrained in molds during the process of growing.  Gelatin capsules were filled with colored sand to mimic the odd color of commercial fertilizer.
